Pen To Paper - Poem by R.M. Alexander

I try to write,
But it's shit.
Again I put pen to paper,
And again I'm dissapointed.
I want to give up,
Toss my notebook in the sea.
Just throw it all away,
No more thinking,
No more writing,
Will that finally bring me peace?
But I know it will not,
And so I look dissapointment,
In the eye once more,
As I again put pen to paper.
